At the January 14th ANC 3B (Glover Park/Cathedral Heights) meeting, the Commission discussed the issue of Streetcars on Wisconsin Avenue. DDOT has begun the infrastructure construction for a streetcar system in parts of Wards 6, 7 and 8. The system map shows transit lines crisscrossing the greater downtown and 'East of River' areas. The Ward Map Boards" (PDF) show a possibility for a future extension from Georgetown up Wisconsin Avenue.
One Glover Park Listserv contributor has outlined several reasons why this is a good idea and how it can work. This is an exciting opportunity to bring the areas of Glover Park, and possibly upper Northwest "Back to the Future" by returning streetcars back to communities that once had them.
